Christmas Joy ....

.... Hi! It's snowing again! It's fun and pretty the first time, but I'm fed up already and want it to stop. Anyway, I managed to make a card for this week's Paper Players - PP#374 - they have super colours and perfect for this card:

Stamps: Concord & 9th - Christmas Cheer Turnabout
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink; Gina K - Grass Green, Onyx Black
Dies: Concord & 9th - Joy
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Melon Mambo; Nuvo Aqua Shimmer - Clera

There are four colours in this week's Paper Players challenge and they work perfectly with this fun Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th. Here's a link to Jennifer McGuire's blog showing how to use the stamp. Once stamped, I lightly sponged the edge of the panel and adhered it to the card base. I die cut the word 'joy' from bold pink card and adhered it flat to the card. I used my clear Aqua Shimmer brush to add lots of festive sparkle to the die cut word. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of pink card and on the white panel added a Christmas greeting, and one impression of the turnabout stamp. I'm also submitting this card to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#435 where they want to see Holiday cards.

I'm going to make a few more cards using this stamps - it's so easy to change up simply by changing the colours!! See you soon.
